Bradford Grammar School is ranked as a Top Ten UK best value independent school for girls and boys aged 6 to 18 in Yorkshire. It is a co-educational, independent school in Frizinghall, Bradford, West Yorkshire, England. Headmaster, Simon Hinchliffe is a member of the Headmasters' and Headmistresses' Conference . The school was founded in 1548 and granted its Charter by King Charles II in 1662. Until 1975 it was a direct grant grammar school, and when this scheme was abolished it chose to become independent. The school motto is Latin: Hoc Age .
Entrance is by examination, except for the Sixth Form, where admission is based on GCSE results. The school gives means-tested bursaries to help with fees. Bradford Grammar School, unusually for a private school, does not offer scholarships based on academic achievement, a policy enforced by a previous headmaster, Stephen Davidson.
